The cap pouch is there but further around the belt.
I don't know why I didn't look earlier but..... page 46 Troiani's Regiments & Uniforms of the Civil War... 41st New York, two cartridge pouches.
I wonder if this of wearing the pouches was adopted because the regiment was recruited from Germans and this looks typically German?
